It is almost time for the first of this year’s two Pink Days in Manitoba and Nunavut.
The first Pink Day, on Feb. 22, will feature the Canadian Red Cross Pink Day Film Festival, starting at 10:30 a.m. Central time, at Winnipeg’s Park Theatre. The festival will feature about 20 short films made by Kindergarten to Grade 12 students from Manitoba and Nunavut.
You can watch the festival live, or after its completion, by clicking here.
The second Pink Day of 2017 will take place on April 12. Schools and workplaces can still order their official Canadian Red Cross Pink Day shirts by going to https://pinkday-mb.ca/ by March 3.
If you need an official shirt for the Feb. 22 Pink Day, they are available at London Drugs in Winnipeg’s St. Vital Centre, while supplies last.
The Canadian Red Cross believes that every child should be treated with respect. As a national leader in violence, abuse and bullying prevention, the Red Cross works with students and educators across Manitoba and Nunavut. As part of its bullying prevention programming, the Canadian Red Cross leads the support of Pink Day in both Manitoba and Nunavut for schools and workplaces.
The theme of this year’s Pink Day is #HeroesAssemble as the Red Cross is calling on people across Manitoba and Nunavut to recognize individuals and groups who promote respect, kindness and bullying prevention through their actions and words.
The Red Cross is encouraging schools and workplaces across Manitoba and Nunavut to register for Pink Day 2017. You can find out how to register below. By registering, you will have access to resource guides and other information. As well, schools that register and submit information to the Red Cross about their plans for Pink Day 2017 will be entered in a draw to win a visit from Pink Day co-founder Travis Price.
Promoting respect and kindness, and speaking out about bullying is heroic. #HeroesAssemble
